The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recently released a final policy stating that all domestic sites of multi-site, NIH-funded studies must use a single Institutional Review Board (sIRB) of record for non-exempt human subject research. This policy applies to all competing grant applications (new, renewal, revision or resubmission) with receipt dates on or after January 25, 2018.
One key challenge in implementing the policy will be operationalizing an electronic IRB system that can effectively support institutions serving as the IRB of record for multi-site studies, relying on external IRBs as the IRB of record or both. Learn more about strategies to manage this shift, including:
- An in-depth analysis of the sIRB policy
- The automation implications of the shift at research institutions
